FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware

FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware

FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware is an obnoxious name for an obnoxious infection, and so it completely makes sense. If this dangerous threat finds a security backdoor via which it can enter a vulnerable operating system, it immediately slithers in, and, unfortunately, it does that silently. Therefore, you might suspect not a thing while your files are being encrypted. The process of encryption is very simple as a unique algorithm is used to cipher the data within the file. Normally, that is what people use to lock and protect their files. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are using this method to hijack personal files and then hold them hostage. If you have been introduced to the message created by the infection already, you know that attackers want money. Well, paying the ransom is risky, and even if you do it, you will need to remove FUCKaNDrUN Ransomware from your operating system. Unfortunately, even if you succeed at deleting this malware, your files are unlikely to be restored. Read more »

Mosk Ransomware

Mosk Ransomware

Mosk Ransomware is one of the newer threats from the Stop Ransomware family. Some malicious applications from this family encrypt victims’ files with offline keys. Specialists say that in such cases, it is possible to decrypt data. Unfortunately, it appears that this version encrypts files differently, which is why its affected files are currently undecryptable. Even so, we do not advise asking for the cybercriminals who created this malicious application to help you. They demand to pay a ransom in return, and the worst part is that there are no guarantees they will provide what they promise. Of course, before you decide, you should learn more about the malware, which is why we advise reading our full article. Also, users should know that it would be safer to erase Mosk Ransomware, which is why we provide manual deletion instructions at the end of this page. Read more »

Bitx Ransomware

Bitx Ransomware

Careless moves online can lead to the invasion of all kinds of malware. Bitx Ransomware is an infection that could do the same. These careless moves might include failure to install updates in time, to recognize malicious downloaders/installers, and to identify spam emails containing malware files. If you are inexperienced and gullible, you are more likely to become a victim of this malware. Of course, even if you are more cautious, malware could find a way into your operating system if you do not protect it appropriately. Once inside the system, the threat encrypts personal files, and then the “.id-{unique ID code}.[1btc@qbmail.biz].bitx” extension is added to their names. Should you remove this extension? Do not bother with that. What you need to do is delete Bitx Ransomware, but, unfortunately, even this will not restore your personal files. In fact, it is possible that you will not be able to recover them. Have you found a tool that promises to decrypt files for free? If you have, research it thoroughly and carefully. Read more »

Rooster865qq Ransomware

Rooster865qq Ransomware

Rooster865qq Ransomware is a recently created ransomware application. As most threats from this category, it encrypts files to take them as hostages and displays a ransom note explaining how to get affected data back. The malware’s note does not provide instructions on how to pay a ransom, but it has the malicious application’s creators’ contact information. Of course, we do not advise contacting them. Hackers are not trustworthy people, and there is always a risk they could scam their victims, in which case, things might get even worse. Therefore, you should consider it carefully. At first, we recommend checking if you have any backup copies that you could use instead of data that got encrypted. If you do, we advise removing Rooster865qq Ransomware with no hesitation. To learn more about this threat, we invite you to read our full article. Read more »

Deal Ransomware

Deal Ransomware

Deal Ransomware appends an extension that ends with .deal to files that it encrypts, e.g., .id[8B6R197N-2423].[butters.felicio@aol.com].deal. Afterward, the malware should open a pop-up window with a message explaining that files got locked, but they are no corrupted and can be restored. The problem is that hackers ask victims to contact them to get their files decrypted. We believe that users who write to them might be asked to pay a particular sum in exchange for decryption tools. Users should be warned that paying ransom might be risky because there are no guarantees that the malicious application's creators will keep up to their end of a bargain. What we advise is removing Deal Ransomware manually while following the instructions placed below this article or with a legitimate antimalware chosen by the user. Read more »

Dharma-Ninja Ransomware

Dharma-Ninja Ransomware

Did Dharma-Ninja Ransomware encrypt files on your operating system? You can determine that by looking at the names of your files and by trying to open them. The “.id-{ID}.[ninja777@cock.li].ninja” extension should be added to the names, and when you try to open the files, you should be unable to do it. The files become unreadable after encryption because the threat changes the data within. Unfortunately, you cannot click a button or use an existing program to change things back to normal. Once files are encrypted, they are likely to be encrypted for good. Of course, the attackers want you to believe that you can restore files using their decryption software. Can you? That is unlikely to be the case, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers are ready to explain why. We also can explain how to delete Dharma-Ninja Ransomware. Keep reading to learn more, and do not forget to post questions in the comments section below if you want to. Read more »

AnteFrigus Ransomware

AnteFrigus Ransomware

When you do not take care of your operating system, you open a door for malware, and one of the infections that could use it is the AnteFrigus Ransomware. This infection might use remote access vulnerabilities, spam emails with malicious attachments, and clandestine bundled downloaders to enter the operating system, and if there is no reliable security software to stop the execution of this threat, your personal files are put at risk instantly. This malware encrypts files and, as the name suggests, it demands a ransom payment afterward. This payment, allegedly, would be exchanged for a decryptor, but can you trust cybercriminals? Of course, you cannot trust them, and that is why our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does NOT recommend making any payments. In fact, we do not recommend interacting with cybercriminals and their malware at all. Instead, you should focus on deleting AnteFrigus Ransomware. Read more »

Arsium Ransomware

You might think that we are about to talk about another ransomware infection because it’s Arsium Ransomware after all, but guess what – it’s not your average ransomware app. Now, why is that? It’s because the program is actually a builder set devised to help you CREATE ransomware. So, it’s like a toolkit for people who want to make their own malicious infections. Perhaps it’s a good thing that none of the samples we had worked, but just in case you find this builder on your system, you should probably remove Arsium Ransomware for good. If it was you who downloaded the builder, we urge you to reconsider your intentions. Read more »

RSA Ransomware

RSA Ransomware

RSA Ransomware was created by hackers who want to extort money from their victims. Therefore, the malicious application was programmed to encrypt personal data and display a ransom note asking to pay for their decryption. While hackers may claim they will provide needed decryption tools right after they get their money, we would not rush to trust them. There is always a risk they may not bother delivering the promised tools or that they might ask for more money. Thus, the best way to restore your files would be using backup copies. Of course, not every user backups his files, in which case, encrypted data could be lost if a victim does not want to put up with hackers’ demands. Whatever is your decision, we recommend removing RSA Ransomware because it might be risky to leave it undeleted. To find out more about it as well as learn how to erase it, we invite you to continue reading. Read more »

DOGCALL

DOGCALL is one of those things that are hard to notice if you do not perform regular system security scans. It is a Trojan that is used to access a target system. The term for these infections is RAT – Remote Access Tool. It means that with this malicious threat on-board, someone gains access to your system, and then the infection can be used to perform a number of illegal activities. To remove DOGCALL, you actually need to be aware of the fact it is there. Thus, regular system scans with security tools are very important if you intend to protect your system from harm. Read more »
